Insulin Resistance, Visceral Adiposity Index and TyG Index in Genotype-4 Chronic HCV Patients and Their Relation to Hepatic Histopathology
INTRODUCTION: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 4 is the most prevalent in Egypt. Vis-ceral adiposity index (VAI) and (TyG) index are newly developed indices for assess-ment of metabolic syndrome (MS) and insulin resistance (IR). We aimed at comparing their levels in HCV-patients with healthy controls and validate their use for prediction of hepatic histopathological changes. PATIENT AND METHODS: 78 chronic ... إقراء المزيد
